How to add a video popup from Youtube or Vimeo

This page contains instructions on how to enable a video to:

  1. Popup in page to max screen size (depending on device)
  2. Loop automatically
  3. NOT show related videos 

There are 2 “codey” things we need to do to make this work:

  1. We need to add some code to your JS file
  2. We also need to update your css file

How to setup your JS code

This code enables the video to be max width, autoplay and prevents related videos when pausing or at the end of the video
